Florida Gators OL Coach Takes Shot at Nick Saban

Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban is the king of college football, so it should come as no surprise that there is some jealousy among the other coaches in the Southeastern Conference. The latest coach to take a shot at Saban is Florida Gators offensive line coach Tim Davis, who coached under Saban during his brief stint in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins.

Davis was speaking at an event in Melbourne, Florida when he decided to comment on Saban while he was praising his current boss Will Muschamp, who also coached under Saban with the Dolphins.

Since Saban’s last name is just one letter away from “Satan,” I guess it is only appropriate that Davis called Saban the devil.

“[UF head coach] Will [Muschamp] and I go back to the Miami Dolphins,” Davis said, via 247 Sports’ GatorBait.net. “I’ve always wanted to work with Will. Will’s got a plan. Will coached under the devil himself for seven years. I only did three. He did seven. And his DNA is not any different than Nick.”

Not only is Saban the devil, according to Davis, but he has a crappy personality.

”[Muschamp's] like the other guy, only he’s got a personality,” Davis said. “He’ll smile at you. He’ll talk to you. You understand? That’s what he’s all about. That’s Will. I’m proud to work for him.”

It’s a good thing that smiling doesn’t win championships.

Saban is doing mighty well for himself, despite what is perceived as a poor personality. If he doesn’t want to talk or smile, that is okay, because he is currently focusing on winning a third-straight BCS National Championship while everyone else is worrying about what he does with his facial muscles.

    Who cares what Tim Davis says. I’m embarrassed for him for giving an interview and saying something so dumb. You know how the old saying goes…if you can’t say something nice then don’t say anything at all.

    As soon as I saw him talk about Muschamp’s smile, John L. Smith popped in my head. SMILE!

    When did football become a smiling competition? We’re working on another National Championship…not a pageant.

    When your football program leaves a little to be desired, guess the philosophy is, smile and wave, just smile and wave.

    Saban the king of over signing enough said

    • Viator16

      First of all, he is not the king of over signing. That is either hyperbole on your part or just plain ignorance. Secondly, according to the NCAA and SEC, Saban has done nothing wrong. Thirdly, if teams aren’t over signing, they are only hurting themselves. I call that stupidity.

    I would take being compared by my enemies to Satan as a compliment. The Marines are called “Devil Dogs.” One army unit was called “The Devil’s Brigade.” I wonder when this guy starts looking for another job if he will regret his remarks?

    He wasn’t smiling after losing to Louisville

    I hope Florda makes the SEC Championship next year and Saban knocks his junk in the dirt, then walks up to him and shakes his hand and gives him a massive shit-eating grin.

    That would be priceless.

    Why do you guys keep spreading this coach gossip? Sports writers these days are more into gossip than teenage girls. The leader of the pack is always hated and feared, but mainly he’s respected.
